Before the D-day today Mr. Chidambaram presented the Economic survey 2007-08 in the LS, couldn’t able to get the full survey here posting some of the highlights of the survey.
GDP projected to grow 8.7 percent in 2007-08
Inflation at 4.1 this fiscal, to be kept below 4.5 coming fiscal
Fiscal deficit to be kept below 3 percent in 2008-09
Fundamentals continue to inspire confidence
Investment climate full of optimism
Rupee appreciation a concern
100 percent foreign direct investment (FDI) in home appliances, rural agricultural banks
51 percent FDI in rural health
Concern: Labour force growing faster than employment growth
Challenge: Maintaining 9 percent GDP growth
these are some of the highlights which I am able to gather..
